If Only They Were Real...And I Was Single

Yesterday, Lynne tagged me for a meme. Here’s the very funny explanation of this meme:

“Ten Literary Characters I Would Totally Make Out With If I Were Single and They Were Real But I’m Not, Single I Mean, I Am Real, But I’m Also Happily Married and Want to Stay That Way So Maybe We Should Forget This.”

This took a whole lot of thought but I think I’ve managed to come up with my choices. Here's my list:

1. Joe Morelli from the Janet Evanovich “Stephanie Plum” series (yummy)
2. Ranger from the “Stephanie Plum” books (sexy, sexy, sexy)
3. Mr. Darcy from PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (so proper yet so sexy)
4. Okay…another date with Ranger
5. Captain Blood from Rafael Sabatini’s book (I just love a good swashbuckler)
6. Robin Hood (OK, I had a crush on him when I was a kid)
7. Yet another date with Ranger
8. Sydney Carton from A TALE OF TWO CITIES (I just love a sacrificing hero)
9. I guess, to be fair, I should have a second date with Joe
10. Tom Schulz, policeman husband from the Diane Mott Davidson “Goldy Bear” series (this man can cook!)

I know, I know…that wasn't the required 10 characters, but I just can’t seem to get Ranger and Joe out of my mind. Hmmmmm…who should I tag? How about Lynn and Patti. Have fun with this one.

The first one that came to mind for me was Rhett Butler..
Glad you didn't tag me because I can never come up with enough on these lists of 10!

Joe and Ranger... Sorry I lost track of what I was going to say.

Renee said...

wow! That's a tough list to do...especially when you're happily married.

What no mention of Sally Sweet or Tank?

Yup, I'm a Plum nerd too.

Lynne said...

Great minds think alike - Joe and Ranger!

Linda said...

With the exception of #10, I was beginning to think that I wrote this list! Not just Joe and Ranger but Mr. Darcy and Sydney Carton, too?? Woohoo!! I like the way you think!!

Betty said...

Definitely Joe and Ranger. Five times, each. That should do it. If they die, they die.
